More USC: Fall of Troy?

LOS ANGELES John David Booty looked as cool as the breeze whispering across the University of Southern California campus.

Showered after a two-hour practice, he sported a T-shirt, shorts and two-day-old stubble while sauntering across the deck of Heritage Hall, a building that houses USC's seven Heisman Trophies. Nearby, the marching band's tuba section boomed notes from "Fight On," and the song girls high-kicked and shimmied during their own practice.

"Sunny and 75 every day," marveled Booty, who endured swamp-like humidity while growing up in Louisiana. "I might never leave this place."

But here in college football paradise, it's about to get hot.

Pressure-cooker hot.


A sports journalist named Peter writes a fawning feature article about a football player named Booty. Sounds pretty hot to me!
